Fritz Trautmann—landscape architect, painter, colorist, teacher—was an important figure in Rochester’s art community. He was at the center of the city’s bohemian life with one foot in the upper echelon of Rochester society, with friends like businesswoman Kate Gleason and patron of the arts Charlotte Whitney Allen. He was known to have painted many murals in East Avenue mansions.

Artist and influential MAG board member Kathleen McEnery Cunningham painted this portrait of her friend Fritz Trautmann. It seems Trautmann was pleased with the likeness as the portrait hung above his mantel for many years. Upon his death, the painting came to the Memorial Art Gallery with his estate.
